Minimum password length: 8

Lockout threshold: Never

The command completed successfully.

The command completed successfully.

I ran the following by right clicking on command window and selecting run as admin:
.
C:\Windows\system32>wmic path Win32_UserAccount WHERE Name='chris garro' set Pas

Hello. I must have had a typo before. I entered the following using elevated command line and now password expires is turned on.
.
C:\Windows\system32>wmic path Win32_UserAccount where Name='Chris Garro' set PasswordExpires=true
.
